The Classic Cask Rare Scotch Whisky Single Batch 40

  1. $400

Distilled in 1972 and bottled in 2012, this 40-year-old blended Scotch is special. The nut-brown hue and rich aromas of sweet spice and brown sugar hint at what’s to come. It delivers bold, complex flavor: rounded toffee, allspice, leather, tea and oak, with a mouthwatering saline note and a long but gentle finish.

The Dalmore Selected by Daniel Boulud

  1. $200

This collaboration between Chef Daniel Boulud and Master Distiller Richard Paterson is predictably delicious. The bespoke spirit is made from Dalmore whiskies finished in casks that previously held Moscatel, Madeira and Port wine. It’s scented with orange peel and caramel, has luxuriously rich toffee and dark-chocolate flavors and finishes with berry notes. This…

Highland Park 18-Year-Old Orkney Islands Single Malt Whisky

  • Best Buy
  1. $79

Opening aromas are of sea breeze, cigar smoke, oak and malted barley; air contact releases light caramel, fudge, cocoa bean, burnt candle wick and heather. Entry is the most complex of any whisky; midpalate soars on oak, spirit and grain tastes. The greatest distilled spirit of this generation. Buy whatever you can find.

Dewar’s 18

  1. $80

This golden blended Scotch is remarkably complex, showing creamy vanilla, crème brûlée and almond before tapering to dry, warm notes of cedar, sandalwood and clove. Finishes long and feather-light, with just a trace of smokiness.

The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve

  1. $125

Honey-amber color and a big butterscotch aroma. Intriguingly dry and earthy, with leather, tobacco, dark chocolate and clove flavors, which accelerate with repeated sips and linger on. Add ice if you must, but avoid watering down this delicious after-dinner treat, which would be even better accompanied by a well-selected dark chocolate or two.

Chivas Regal 25 Year Old

  1. $250

Complex and flavorful, with raisin and fresh apple aromas in a supersoft, silky texture. Add a splash of water to coax out intense clove, burnt orange, caramel and crème brûlée notes.The smoky finish is the long-lingering type that whisky aficionados exclaim over for 10 minutes as the flavors continue to kaleidoscope. For maximum enjoyment, sip without any whisky…

Chivas Regal 18 Years

  1. $75

Amber and bright in the glass, this 18-year-old blended whisky melds vanilla, cigar wrapper and chamomile tea notes with nutmeg and cinnamon spice, plus a delicate puff of sweet smoke. Feels light and silky, finishes long and gently.

Glenfiddich 18

  1. $90

Luxe and easy-sipping. Look for enticing notes of butterscotch, baked pear, cinnamon and clove on the nose and palate, swathed in just the right amount of smokiness.
